2006 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class SL55 AMG SL55 AMG 2dr Convertible (5.4L 8cyl S/C 5A)


Review

This car is an absolute joy to drive. It's like having 3 cars in one...luxury, sports, and convertible. I couldn't ask for a car that is capable in all 3 areas.


Favorite Features

Intoxicating exhaust note, tree-stump pulling torque, quiet and smooth ride.


Suggested Improvements

Car has many complex systems that can easily malfunction. Eliminate nav system...totally worthless to me. Reduce weight of car by eliminating some of the complex systems like the ABC (a source of many problems), aluminum hood, roof and trunk lid.

Review

My SL55 has been the car I always wanted. It outperforms the 2 year old Porshe I turned, in all catagories. It is faster, corners better and much more comfortable. The hard top convertible gives you a quiet ride when up.I have had a few minor electronic problems that were fixed quickly I have the SL 65 sport package on mine. It is the same car as an SL65 without the extra 800 pounds in the motor and only 111 less H.P. This is the best production sports,luxury,Muscle car on the road. The downside, They charge you for all 3 cars.It beats almost everything. If you can afford a $145,000 car, This is the best car on the road.


Favorite Features

Pick-up, cornering, comfort, SL65 package really changes the car. Braking and quick moves on the road at high speeds is amazing. Keyless Go. Leave the key in your pocket and it opens the door and starts the car. The workmanship is amazing.


Suggested Improvements

The command center needs changes. Ths aftermarket GPS in my other car is a lot better. The GPS entry is tedious and chooses bad routes sometimes. But it wil get you there. The trunk is very small. Have seperate keys for drivers so that all of the interior changes adjust by who is walking up.

Review

The SL55 puts track performance and handing capabilities into a comfortable street legal vehicle. That would be difficult to improve upon. I have owned other more exotic sports cars, some at twice the price, and the SL55 is the best to date. Anyone considering the SL65 should go to the SL55 instead. The added 800 pounds up front in the SL65 has a huge negative impact on handing, which is why the SL55 consistently beats on US and European tracks.


Favorite Features

Handling. Tight turns are a joy to take at high speed. It outperforms Ferrari and Porsche in the slalom.


Suggested Improvements

None

Great car. Lots of fun to drive. No major problems with the car though have had a good number of small items.

The hard top, the stereo system sounds great.

The GPS is very hard to work with. Difficult to input the data and the map does not contain any street names.

Review

The machine's near 500 horsepower combined with its sophisticated sound system (with Sirius radio)means that you never have to go home, if you don't want to.
